Using only positive, reward based training methods is important for greyhounds as many may have come from traumatic or unpleasant experiences.
Using slow feeder or anti-gulp bowls, alongside food dispensing toys at mealtime for greyhounds and other large breeds can help to reduce the risk of bloat, a potentially life threatening condition.
Greyhounds have very little body fat, which means they really feel the cold and require jackets, jumpers or paw-jamas even in the mildest winter.
Greyhounds prefer to lie down rather than sit on their haunches. Choose well padded mattress style beds with plenty of room to stretch out. Warming and fleecy beds are a ideal for use in winter.
Greyhounds are commonly affected by dental disease, which makes it especially important to establish a dental health maintenance routine. This could include a combination of toothbrushing, treats, food, toys and other health products.
Worried about leaving your greyhound at home alone? Investing in some clever pet tech like pet cams and interactive toys can give you peace of mind and help to prevent development of boredom or separation anxiety.
